You want to date the girl of your dreams. Unfortunately, you
hold this girt with so much esteem that she is high up on a
pedestal and you have to get her down. You can do this by
wooing her and winning her heart with the right presents. If you
succeed, you'll score in a big way at the love-nest hotel. But be
careful! If you mess up too many times she'll lose her patience
with you and leave!
THE SET UP
Set up your video computer system and joystick controller as
indicated in your manufacturer's owner manual- Turn the
power switch OFF and insert the Pick Up cartridge.
Turn the power ON.
Use the Game Select lever to select the initial play level.
Level 1 begins at screen 1
Level 2 begins at screen 5
Level 3 begins at screen 10
Level 4 begins at screen 15
Use the TV Type switch to select the gender of the characters.
Color - Boy player gets the girl
B+W - Girl player gets the boy
Dale On Pedestal
Press the Game Reset lever or the joystick button to start on
your fantastic date!
You control the boy (or girl if the TV Type Switch is set to B+W)
as he attempts to get presents to win his girl's heart. Pressing
the joystick to the left will move the boy to the left. Pressing the
joystick to the right will move the boy to the right. Pressing the
joystick button will fire a projectile into the sky to hit a present.
You can steer the projectile left and right by moving the joystick
left or right.
You begin each level with 5 chances to hit presents with your
projectile. If you hit a present, it will appear at the bottom of the
screen. If you mistakenly hit a present that you already caught,
you will lose one chance and that present will disappear from
the bottom of the screen. You will then have to hit the present
again. If you lose all of your chances, the girl will get tired of
waiting. She'll jump off her pedestal and dash off the screen. At
that point you will sink into the ground from embarrassment.
CAR HEART FLOWER
MONEY PERFUME WINE GLASS
There are six presents, Wine Glass, Car, Money, Perfume,
Heart, and Flower, moving back and forth (and up and down in
higher levels) around the top of the screen. You must hit all six
presents with a projectile before the girl will come down from
her pedestal Each present that you hit will appear at the bottom
of the screen. However, if you hit a present that you already
have, you will lose it along with one of your chances. If you take
too long hitting a present, one will begin flashing for a brief time.
If you don't hit it while it is flashing, you will lose a chance.
Love N est Hotel
If you are lucky enough to acquire all 6 presents, your date will
step off of her pedestal. She will then collect her presents as the
two of you walk to the Love Nest Hotel. There, the curtains are
lowered so you can really score!
Points are scored based on the level that you are on. If you are
on the second level, these points are doubled. If you are on the
third level, these points are tripled.

the next date of your dreams. You will be awarded five new
chances to win her over. Should you decide that you don't
want to go on another date, your trusty dog Fido will come
along to make sure you do.
